My local paper featured a great idea for a last-minute vintage Halloween costume and since I've been so negligent with retro Halloween ideas, here it is for you: pair together a great hat and wig. You can be Miss C herself, Cleopatra, the Chiquita Banana icon, or a Victorian tart. Whatever - the point is, I thought this was a nice idea to pull together a costume with a retro touch.

These featured wigs and hats come from the Great Eastern Trading Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The shop is an established vintage store now featuring costume inventory. The store stocks masks and 20s flapper dresses, and wigs start at only $10. Check them out at 49 River Street, Cambridge (617-354-5279) or look for similar stores in your area to spark Halloween ideas.
